I am also trying to get some up-to-date information about circular chess and in particular the 2005 championships. Can anyone help, or at least point me in the right direction?

I have found a new link to the Circular Chess Society

I'd like to add that the Society appears to have run into difficulties as
there is no update to the site, and the info address is not working. I have
not tried snail mail to Eamonn Hunt. Does anyone have any more

I feel that I must warn anyone wishing to purchaes a circular chess board
from the circular chess society not to send any paymentr until they can be
certain that they eill recieve a board .
I sent a payment to the society back in marrh 2003 and despite several
letters to the society I have as of 28th june not recieved a board even
though my cheque was cashed.

This must have happened in expanding the board size, the arrow should
point to the black on the diagonal.  The queen can only (?) do bishop and
rook as normal queens do. Apologies for any confusion.  David Howe has
very kindly volunteered to extend the arrow a tad. Thanks for the

Sounds great, making up a board now. Just a question though, when the moves
for the queen are detailed it seems she can also make the moves of a
knight... or how else can one explain the way she can move to the white
squares in the outer most ring in the diagram detailing her moves??

Sounds interesting. I'm trying to increase my skill with chess & I find the variations on it stimulate my enthusiasm.
